    • Continuum and multiscale models of particle transport [lecture]


One-minute poster session: All participants were invited to present a poster concerning their research. Every presenter of a poster received a one-minute slot in the conference programme (in a plenary session) to attract the attention to his or her poster. See the PDF files the one-minute session.

The following posters were rated the best by a jury consisting of the keynote speakers under the leadingship of Kees Vuik:

  Joris Degroote Tinne Haentjens    Aram Markosyan
1. Joris Degroote (Ugent)
Partitioned solution of the unsteady adjoint equations for a 1D fluid-structure interaction problem
2. Tinne Haentjens (UA)
ADI schemes for the numerical solution of the Heston-Hull-White PDE
3. Aram Markosyan (CWI)
Why do we need high order fluid model for streamers?
